Mary J., Taraji, and Kerry Star in the Commercial of My Dreams

A scene from the ad.

Apple Music may or may not be a lesser Spotify, but man, it just gifted us the best moment from tonight’s Emmy telecast. 

In order to shill its music-streaming service, Apple brilliantly enlisted Selma director Ava DuVernay to direct a minute-long ad in which goddesses Taraji P. Henson and Kerry Washington show up at queen goddess Mary J. Blige’s house for an Apple Music tutorial. All three end up dancing to a soundtrack that includes Slick Rick, Busta Rhymes, and Phil Collins — the music that plays in our souls, too. It’s the best friendship erotica this world has ever seen.
